Color Run and Cancer Screening

Free oral cancer screenings

To commemorate Oral Cancer Awareness Month (April), Spodak Dental Group (3911 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach) is offering free oral cancer screenings until April 28.

This is not just for the dental practice’s patients. Anyone in the community can schedule a free oral cancer screening.

Spodak Dental Group is offering the free screenings on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

According to practice press information, “There will be roughly 50,000 people who will be newly diagnosed with oral cancer this year, and the fastest growing segment of the [oral cancer] population are young, healthy, nonsmoking individuals. The screenings are painless and take less than 10 minutes.”

To book your appointment, call 561/498-0050.

The Color Run, April 23

It’s almost time for the Color Run, a 5k (3.1 miles), at Huizenga Park (1 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale).

“New this year is a limited-edition participant kit, Tropicolor Zone on course and an amped-up finish festival featuring Rainbow Beach, music, dancing, photos and more!” according to the Color Run press information. “Also, the Color Run is giving back to the community by teaming up with the local non-profit organization, Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale to shine a light on their extraordinary work.”

And, there’s more to color runs than running. Race participants will be entertained with island-style music and bathed in colors and island scents as they make their way along the Las Olas Blvd. course.

The Saturday, April 23 event starts at 7: 30 a.m. Individual entry costs $39.99. For more information or to sign up, click here.
